He has spoken in all 50 states of the U.S., on over 800 college and high school campuses, and to community groups across the nation on issues of comparative racism, race and education, racism and religion, and racism in the labor market.

Wise is the author of six books, including the highly acclaimed memoir, White Like Me: Reflections on Race from a Privileged Son.
